(Fatwa: 266/L=64/tl=1432)

You should only consult Shariah Darul Qaza. If the guilt of your husband is proved, Darul Qaza will have the right to revoke the nikah according to shariah. If they revoke your nikah in the light of Shariah proofs, you shall be free to marry someone else. Also, you have rights to ask for the expenses of both the children because the responsibility of children’s expense lies on father not mother.

Allah (Subhana Wa Ta’ala) knows Best
